The "no-hype" expert guide to choosing your next scanner.


Bewildered by today's complex scanner specs? Need to filter the hype from the reality? Desktop Scanners: Image Quality Evaluation delivers the practical, objective information you need to choose the best scanner -- and get great results from it. Detailed enough for experts yet clear enough for beginners, it's like having a world-class scanning expert by your side throughout the entire evaluation, purchase and configuration process. You'll get answers to key questions like:



  • What kind of scanner do I need? Are those new low-cost scanners really enough?

  • How does a scanner actually work, and how can I make mine work better?

  • What do those DPI and bit-depth specifications mean -- if anything?

  • How do I scan for accurate color on the Web?

  • What options and software do I need?

  • How are scanners changing, and which new technologies are most important?


From the absolute basics to sophisticated gamma correction and color space issues, here are the practical answers and step-by-step testing procedures you need to get the most for your money. When it comes to scanners, you'll never be "in the dark" again.


On the accompanying CD-ROM, you'll find example images, scanner evaluation tools, online presentations, and further explanations of key concepts.
